Yes! I do love My Digital Studio!

The more that I play with MDS... the more I am in love! I loved creating this page of my son Isaac on his first day of Kindergarten this year.

Isaac missed a lot of school due to his health problems in pre-K and Kindergarten; so, as a family, we decided to have him repeat Kindergarten. I was so worried at how he would feel this year on the first day of school. I knew he would see his friends go on to first grade and he would be returning to Kindergarten. I am so grateful that he did amazingly. He shows me over and over that he is a warrior boy! He took that picture with his favorite monkey and then ran in to put it in the house. After the kids got on the bus, I walked back into the house and saw that monkey thrown on the steps. It felt like he was going to school for the first time! It seems like he was just born and it hurt my heart to have him go off without me AGAIN! But, I couldn't stop there. I drove my car to the school to capture his arrival. All Kindergarten students meet in the gym. While he was waiting, he saw me and tried to make a heart symbol with his little hands. Once again, my heart crashed into the rest of my body! But, he was so cute because he was the only one who knew all of the routines. Every morning the kids recite the "HAWK" rules while making a HAWK sign with their hands. I captured him walking down the hall reciting the rules with his little hawk signal. And, I knew that we would all be okay!

My 1st Attempt at My Digital Studio!

I have had a lot of fun playing with My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up! I think this could become an addiction. I used a template for this one; but, I can't wait to make a page from scratch.

This page features the day my girls and I spent in Washington, DC on September 12. We participated in a "Unity Walk" to honor and remember the victims of the September 11 attacks on our country. We got to learn about many different religions and cultures. We had such a great time... and, it was Sarina's birthday too! Since Sarina was born the day after the anniversary of September 11, we decided to name her "Sarina" because it means "peace". We are so hopeful that she will see peace in her lifetime!

Peace and love to all!
